Summerland Tour w/ Everclear/Marcy Playground & Local H ~ Dr. Pepper Park ~ June 2, 2018 ~ Roanoke, Virginia

The Summerland Tour, presented by SiriusXM, returned this year with a lineup including Everclear, Marcy Playground and Local H. The tour kicked off in Dallas, TX on 5/17, and made a stop at the Dr. Pepper Park in Roanoke, VA on June 2. Our contributing photographer Michele Hancock (of Michele Hancock, Photographer) was on-hand and captured the shots below!

Created in 2012 by Everclear frontman, Art Alexakis, the Summerland Tour has become a summer tour favorite of fans and critics alike, with Rolling Stone naming it one of the “10 Hottest Summer Package Tours”. Alongside Everclear as its recurring headliner, past Summerland lineups have featured notable alternative rock bands such as Sugar Ray, Lit, Soul Asylum, Eve 6, Space Hog, Gin Blossoms, Live, Fuel, American HiFi, The Toadies and Filter, making it a go-to tour for fans of ‘90s alternative rock.

Alexakis shares: “This year the Summerland Tour will be a different look at ’90s alternative and the different facets of what it’s about. I think it will be really cool because it’s usually big guitar-based, but Marcy Playground is more acoustic-based and Local H is two guys that make a whole lot of beautiful noise. With Everclear, we’re going to play the hits we always play, but we’re also going to mix it up. Every night will be a little different; there’ll be a few surprises every show.”
